Oahu by Air

Apr 2, 2008
There are three major aspects that define all of the Hawaiian Islands as the vacation paradises that they are currently regarded as. These are the land, the air and the sea. Although each of these is merely a different view of the same general area, the difference in the majesty of the three is amazing. You have not truly experienced the entire Honolulu Hawaii vacation until you have seen all three points of view. Fortunately, through the vacation attractions that Honolulu provides, you have the opportunity to get it all at fairly reasonable rates. There are land tours, hikes, and many options for wonderfully scenic beaches to explore. As for the Sea, there are hundreds of cruise options, the opportunity for deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling, and simply taking a nice swim in the crystal blue waters of the pacific ocean. From the air, there are also many opportunities. The most adventurous of the three aspects of Hawaii is no doubt that which is experienced at two thousand feet.

The island of Oahu, home to the esteemed city of Honolulu, offers three different options for the air experience, all original in their journeys, each one providing some of the most amazing views of this tropical slice of heaven. One is the Hawaii Mr. Bill's Glider Rides. On this one you will take the back seat to an experienced professional glider pilot as he or she takes you on a wonderful skyline tour of the majestic Waianae Mountains where you will have the opportunity to take in an unparalleled view of the famed North Shore of Oahu. From there you will move on to Kaena Point and Mokuleia Beach where you can look down and see all the windsurfers hundreds of feet below. As a bonus you will also have the opportunity to view the historical site of Pearl Harbor and Diamond Head.

Now, if you wish to make your experience a little more extreme, the talented and highly trained crew of Mr. Bills will show you how a few glider tricks are done. Remember, this part is optional. If you ask for the experience ahead of time, the pilot will do a three hundred and sixty degree loop in the air and fly for a ways upside down. Though the sky world of this tropical wonderland is an awesome experience by itself, there are just no words to describe the sensation of seeing it upside down at over one thousand feet in the sky. There is also a package where the pilot will teach you how to fly the glider plane. Alternately, you can choose a package that has everything in one flight, if you are brave enough.

Adventure is a key aspect to any really memorable vacation experience. You can find plenty of adventure in any of the three aspects of the Hawaiian Islands, the land, sea, and air. Nevertheless, nothing quite compares to the heart pounding action of flying in a small glider plane far above the tropical scene below. Make sure you experience all of Hawaii on your next Honolulu vacation getaway.
